Zetafonts is based in Florence, Italy, and has spent more than a decade designing and releasing typefaces that are as aesthetically inspiring as they are functional in their applications. Founded by Francesco Canovaro, Debora Manetti, and Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini, Zetafonts is an innovative foundry whose mission is to offer flexibility, individuality, and artistry to graphic designers around the world.
Their most recent addition to YouWorkForThem is a humanist sans serif influenced by classic Roman capital lettering, specifically those used in the stone carvings of Santa Croce Cathedral in Florence, one of the oldest Franciscan basilicas in the world. If that name sounds familiar to you, it’s likely because Santa Croce is the final resting place of many prominent historical figures, including Michelangelo, Machiavelli, and Galileo.
It stands to reason that such magnificent architecture would inspire Beatrix Antiqua, a font whose elegance effortlessly imbues ancient tradition through its modern design. Slight but significant calligraphic details refine this sophisticated letter set, becoming more pronounced in its italic forms.
Crisp legibility is a hallmark of Beatrix Antiqua, making it especially well suited for editorial purposes, educational texts, white papers, corporate correspondence, and book content. It’s an impressively versatile type design, offering distinction and authority in advertising layouts, branding, and professional identity, as well.
Beatrix Antiqua is available in nine weights with corresponding italics for each. Multilingual support extends to Basic Latin, Western European, Euro, Catalan, Baltic, Turkish, Central European, Romanian, Pan African Latin, Dutch, Afrikaans, Basic Greek, and Basic Cyrillic for vast adaptability.
